India has highest number of corona cases in Asia
“The delta variant is currently limited to Java, but we are now seeing its cases spreading to other areas like Lampung, East Kalimantan, South Sumatra,” Boodi said. We have increased our surveillance in these areas. However, if we are talking about the total number of corona virus cases, then India still has the highest number of corona cases in Asia. So far 4 lakh 10,000 people have lost their lives in India due to this epidemic. After that comes the number from Indonesia where 68,000 people lost their lives.
At present, there are 4 lakh 31,000 active cases of corona in India, while the recovery rate has also increased to 97.28% which is the highest in the world. Let us tell you that in the midst of the Corona outbreak in Indonesia, there has been a severe shortage of oxygen these days. Like in India, there is a long queue for oxygen in Indonesia. The situation is so bad that people are dying in their homes hoping for oxygen.
people roam door to door for oxygen
Gaseous oxygen has become valuable in Indonesia and is not available even after much research. Pinta, who is in line outside a store, tells Al Jazeera, “I came here to buy an oxygen tank for my mother. My mother became corona positive on Sunday and we searched for places in many hospitals but found no vacant beds. We had a list that said oxygen was available here, but every place I visited the store was found empty.
